Kitesail Freebooter Discussion

Poseidon31 on King vibes (mono black control)

Cut down 2 lands. You need more draw for that specific gameplan. So add 2 copies of Sign in Blood.

Cut Extinction Event completly and add 1 Duress and 2 Mutilate.

Cut down the empire cycle by 1. YOu have 4 Tutor cards. Should be enough, to get them early. Therefore 3 Disfigure gives you more Boardcontrol.

For the sideboard Kitesail Freebooter gives you a second Duress effect against control/non creature decks.

Ha, I like the consistency to theme with your sideboard. I think Deadeye Tracker, Kitesail Freebooter, and Dire Fleet Daredevil would be very good additions to it that still go with the pirate motif, though. I'd also personally replace the Dire Fleet Neckbreakers with Ruin Raider or more Fell Flagships to make your deck even more grindy and durable to control!

Kitesail Freebooter might provide you with some more tempo and flying than Burglar Rat

I feel like Kitesail Freebooter would do a lot for you in this deck. It lets you know what your opponent is doing, takes them off tempo, and is a flyer.

Hey, nice budget version of Brass.

Cards a $1 or less each to consider adding:



Repeatable Draw


Command Tower is one of the best lands for multicolored decks in Commander and it's $1. Pirates have to do combat damage to a player to trigger Brass this makes Pirates who have flying/other evasion important because they can more easily attack and not be blocked thus do combat damage to a player. Wonder can give all your Pirates flying as long as it's in your graveyard and you control one Island. More Pirates with flying/other evasion makes Bident and Mission good repeatable draw since for each Pirate who does combat damage to a player you draw a card.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Walk the Plank
  • Cancel
  • Heartless Pillage
  • Thaumatic Compass
  • Vance's Blasting Cannons
  • Dusk Legion Dreadnought
  • Lightning-Rig Crew
  • Storm Fleet Swashbuckler
  • Headstrong Brute
  • Rigging Runner
  • Storm Fleet Aerialist

Good luck with your deck.

Scallywallwest on Jund in Modern, but Standard

Yeah, ZareZare, you've gone Jund, no doubt about it... also, Kitesail Freebooter is from Ixalan, thus not standard legal. And Scavenging Ooze isn't either...

bChulane doesn't really go with any of the tempo disruption strategies that Modern Humans has. It really feels like a normal edh creature deck, which just happens to use the same creature type.

Modern Humans is entirely based on Kitesail Freebooter's ability with Meddling Mage to shut out combo decks, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben's ability to slow them down and protect your board, and the Champion of the Parish, Mantis Rider, Thalia's Lieutenant setup to end the game at fast speeds with the otherwise weak hatebears. Adding in the rest of the deck you see that the goal of Humans isn't to combo with humans, but to be an anti-noncreature deck with hatebears, which use Aether Vial to get around counterspells, and then use Cavern of Souls as well as a tribal base just to pump out a bit more damage and consistency in the Modern format.

Drawing cards and playing additional lands as you speed through your deck of creatures isn't Humans, it's much more akin to Legacy Elves.

I'm actually going Bant with Chulane, just to dump a bunch of Hatebearers on the ground super fast. The only notable cards Black and Red add in terms of humans are Harsh Mentor, Imperial Recruiter, and Kitesail Freebooter. I'll have it posted today!
